The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Abdullahi Ganduje, has presented the Certificate of Return to Senator Monday Okpebholo, the winner of the party’s gubernatorial primary election in Edo State.
Speaking while presenting Okpebholo with the certificate, Ganduje declared that it is almost certain that the APC will win the September 21 Edo Governorship Election.
Ganduje said his confidence is based on the qualities of the party’s candidate.

The APC national chairman, who presented the certificate of return to Okpebholo in Abuja on Saturday, said there was a need for other aspirants to work with him to ensure the party’s victory in the state.

According to him, direct primaries were held in 192 wards in the state with records and video evidence, stressing that Okpebholo was declared winner because he got the highest votes.

“The full cooperation, harmony and unity of all aspirants and members of our party is all we need now to win Edo in the coming election now that the primary is over.

“The party has a product that is refined, well packaged and sellable to the electorate in the person of Okpebholo and is therefore ready to win Edo,” Ganduje said.

The former Kano State governor said that other aspirants had since congratulated Okpebholo as the party’s candidate.

The party’s Deputy National Organising Secretary, Mr Nze Duru, while presenting the committee’s report to Ganduje, said the primary election was adjudged nationally and internationally to be the most peaceful, fairest and most transparent in the state.

Okpebholo, in his remarks, called on other aspirants who contested the party’s ticket to join forces with him to ensure that the APC win the September 21 governorship election.
